An exciting season of F4 Spain is about to begin its journey in 2024 as the historic Circuito de Madrid Jarama - RACE, located on the outskirts of Madrid, will host the first of seven races of the current season. A year in which the team based in Alzira aspires to once again contend for the various titles, repeating the role the structure has played in the last three seasons since its entry into the category in 2021.

James Egozi and Enzo Tarnvanichkul, both Red Bull Junior drivers, and Nathan Tye will be part of Campos Racing while Andrés Cárdenas, Jan Przyrowski, and Ernesto Rivera will form the trio racing under the banner of Griffin Core by Campos. In total, six drivers of extraordinary youth, but at the same time of incredible talent, as they have already demonstrated in both the collective tests of F4 Spain and the Winter Series events held in preceding weeks. Of the six drivers, only the Peruvian Cárdenas repeats from the past season while the remaining five are making their debut in a championship that will exceed thirty entries. Campos Racing's good work with young guns, which was evidenced by their drivers being classified as the top three rookies of 2023, is undoubtedly an excellent introduction before the weekend begins.

At the end of April, the championship scheduled an official test that served as a dress rehearsal with the Jarama, a track that was last present on the F4 Spain calendar in 2020. The team's drivers were consistently among the fastest, showing their quick adaptation and the competitiveness of the team's Tatuus single-seaters. Inaugurated in 1967, the Jarama hosted ten Formula 1 Grand Prix races between that season and 1981. Despite successive changes for safety reasons, the circuit designed by John Hugenholtz retains an unchanged DNA. A twisty and technical layout with a succession of corners that make overtaking, at the end of its short straight, quite a challenge. Over the years, corners like Nuvolari, Fangio, Varzi, Ascari, or Portago have become, alongside Pegaso or Bugatti, true icons of Spanish motorsport.

After Jarama, two events will be held outside our borders, scheduled in Algarve (June 7-9) and Le Castellet (July 5-7), the championship will return to our country in Motorland Aragón (July 26-28). After the summer break, the series will resume in Cheste (September 13-15). Jerez (October 4-6) will host the sixth event while the season will close in Barcelona (November 8-10).

The schedule has planned two free practice sessions on Saturday morning, each lasting forty minutes. Starting from 15:40, the first qualifying session will take place. Race 1 will consist of 30 minutes + 1 lap and will start later that afternoon at 18:10. On Sunday, the drivers will hit the track at 10:00 for the second qualifying session. The second race, scheduled for 25 minutes plus one lap, will begin at 12:05. Finally, the third and final race will take place starting at 17:25, consisting of 30 minutes plus one lap. All the action can be followed through the championship's live streaming on YouTube.

Adrián Campos (Team Principal of Campos Racing): "We are very excited to start the 2024 F4 Spain season because it promises to be extremely thrilling. We have put together a very strong team of young talents with a lot of potential who are destined to do great things in motorsport. Throughout these winter months, we have worked hard to reach the Jarama at our highest possible level. The recent collective tests held prove this. We have six drivers, any of whom can win. Hopefully, our participation in 2024 will be even more successful than the three previous ones in F4 Spain."

James Egozi (Campos Racing Driver in F4 Spain): "Finally, it's race week! Couldn't be happier or more ready to start the season with Campos Racing. I believe the results will speak for themselves."
